Happy Sunday!  I had some time to get crafty this afternoon.  I have two cards to share.  For the first card, I started with PTI stampers select white for the base.  I die cut a hawaiian shores panel that I very lightly sponged with white pigment ink for added interest.   I die cut a circle frame using the bitty dot pattern vellum.

When I saw this sketch, I just knew I was going to have to ink up the PTI Flower Favorites again.  I love these beautiful Lupines.  I layered the flowers with a few touches of loose threading behind.  I added a few of the butterflies from the same set.  In keeping with the colors from the challenge, I chose to stamp the flower stems in the neutral tone of fine linen.  I used Bitty Bouquets for the sentiment.  I finished the card with a few clear sequins.    

I am playing along with Cardabilities Sketch Challenge, Just Us Girls vellum challenge, and  Colour Q  Color Challenge.

Thanks for Everything!

For my second card I started with MFT kraft.  I cut a smooth white panel of smooth white.  I stamped the diagonal background stamp in different directions to get the sno cone grid pattern. 

I layered a pierced rectangle frame that I die cut using the inside/outside stitch circle from Blueprints 18. I stamped the frame with MFT Linen background in natural ink.  I die cut and stamped the Watercolor Flowers.  I die cut a gumball green fishtail flag.  I  assembled card.  I stamped the sentiment using Fall Foliage stamp set with hybrid black licorice.   I used some foam mounting tape to give the center circle some dimension.

I am playing along with The Color Throwdown and Sweet Sunday Sketch.   

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
